Celebrate Dr Jane’s landmark 85th Birthday and help us continue her legacy!

On April 3, our founder Dr. Jane Goodall will celebrate her 85th birthday!

With the special day just around the corner, Roots & Shoots around the world will be taking part in Global celebrations. It’s the perfect opportunity to recognise and reflect on years spent helping people, animals and the environment.

Please join us in honouring Dr Goodall’s work, and more importantly, contribute to her on-going legacy.  There will be a very special prize for the school that raises the most funds for R&S!
